Mystery of the Internal Vibration

Another thing about Alzheimer’s disease is you always hear about the high levels of aluminum in Alzheimer patients but scientists don’t know why. I think it’s simple. Low level of zinc causes magnesium loss which causes the rising level of aluminum. 

This is from the Alzheimer’s Society website:

Aluminum

At the present time Aluminum is one of several factors scientists are investigating in the search for a cause of Alzheimer’s disease. The role of aluminum in the body and the brain is not well understood. Scientists disagree as to whether or not there is a connection between aluminum and Alzheimer’s disease.

And here is an article regarding magnesium’s role with aluminum.

The Aluminum – Magnesium Link

Research have suggested that aluminum may be more likely to accumulate in the brains of persons whose diets are magnesium-deficient — which, unfortunately, includes 90% of Americans! Several studies have shown that animals fed diets low in magnesium accumulate high concentrations of aluminum in the Central Nervous System. One of magnesium’s many functions is to activate the enzyme tubulin involved in the maintenance of nerve tissue cells. It has been suggested that when there is not enough Magnesium in the body to plug into the appropriate receptor site on the tubulin enzyme, aluminum takes its place instead. This leads to the inactivation of tubulin and, consequently, inadequate nerve function. Malic acid can pull aluminum away from this enzyme, making a place for magnesium. This may be a protection against Alzheimer’s disease.

Malic Acid is found abundantly in fruits such as apples. Malic Acid is also produced in the human body. It is a metabolite of the Krebs cycle the set of biochemical reactions used to produce 90% of all energy in the cells of the body. Malic Acid readily crosses the Blood-Brain-Barrier and has been shown to bind to aluminum. It functions in the body by drawing aluminum away from the tubulin enzyme, so that Magnesium can plug into the receptor sites instead. Malic Acid’s unique ability to bind with aluminum means it can be flushed out of the body, preventing unwanted build-up.

Because a Magnesium-deficient diet may increase the amount of aluminum taken up and stored by the body, it is vitally important that we take in sufficient amounts.

I like this mineral chart because it contains the some of the trace minerals and the most interesting thing about this one is the fact that it contains aluminum. The naturophath said based on my hair analysis, my level of aluminum was high. Well looking at the mineral chart, it has a direct relationship with phosphorus. Was this mentioned? Nope… because everything you read says that a deficiency in phosphorus is extremely rare and unlikely.

To reduce the amount of aluminum, she gave me zinc, copper, calcium and magnesium.

My second appointment of the day was a follow up with my naturopath. I take in my research since my last visit and I have with me my EMF meter and my Miswaak. She pulls my file from her briefcase and mentions how she talks about my file in her current course.

She pulls out an article for me called “Oral Mines Uncovered” written by a homeopathic dentist Dr. Gary Fortinsky. In the article, she points out that exposure to mercury fillings can effect the nervous system. Interesting stuff but I had mine removed about ten years ago. I had them removed when I came across an article in the paper about a women who had experienced a variety of health issues and how she discovered that it was linked to her mercury fillings.

I start by showing her the meter and ask her if I can measure her laptop. She agrees and as I move closer, it raises the needle to the danger range. I offer it to her and she measures the power outlet beside her desk. It measures a low reading and I tell her to measure the power adapter attached to the cable. She does and it give a high reading. She seems really interested and wants to know where I bought it.

She asks about the stomach acid test and I told her I didn’t burp at all when I did the first test, and I did it again a few days later after taking niacin and it returned to normal. She makes a notation in her file. I tell her about the success with niacin and the B complex vitamins. She points out the high aluminum reading for my hair analysis and says I should be adding zinc to my daily vitamins. I ask her about the niacin dosage and if I can increase it. She looks it up in her medical book and gives the okay to increase it to 300 mg.

I review my notes and mention how my plantar fasciitis improved within days of taking niacin. She seemed surprised by this and I continue. I mention my allergies and how I came across a study that showed the effects of microwaving plastic and a possible link to Allergic Rhinitis. She tells me how the plastic can cause a hormone imbalance so I ask her if I can be tested. She provides the form and it will cost $240.00. Expensive but I’m going to do it. It’s a simple saliva test that has to be done within the first hour of waking up. The test is for the four main male hormones: Estradiol, Testosterone, DHEA and Cortisol.

Back to the Naturopath. Followed up for the results of the Hair Analysis Test and told her about my new discoveries and about the Colonoscopy. She said the fact that the Colonoscopy was clean meant that I was lucky enough to catch the problem early so that there was no damage.

The Hair Analysis report is divided into two sections and she said to ignore the second half because it was considered too controversial for a reliable reading. We talked about the first part of the Hair Analysis and two things stood out. My aluminum and silver levels were both above normal. She said Aluminum was fairly common as it can be found in deodorants. The high level of silver was unusual.

She recommended I try a vitamin diet to get the levels back to normal.

Vitamin Per Day

1-Vit C (500 mg) 3 times a day
1-Cal/Mag (300 mg) 3 times a day
1-Zinc (50mg) once a day
1-Copper (3mg) once a day
1-B6 Complex Twice a day1-Acidophulus Twice a day
